homicide under this law. certain kinds of contraception would be illegal under this law. women who had abortion would be murderers under this law. that is the sort of thinking that animates paul ryan. >> well, the other reason, and this is something i know they never thought of and i'm kidding because it's so unreal, if you're here without papers, you're an illinois legal immigrant and you're in the country and you get pregnant. that pregnancy is a person under the 14th amendment and certainly can't be taken out of the country. they're a citizen the united states. you can't leave. so if you don't want to get thrown out of the country, get pregnant. they can't even move you without violating the 14th amendment rights of life, liberty, and property of the fertilized egg. this is how unthinking i think they are within their own prejudicial map they try to figure out. >> massive hypocrisy and short-term thinking is characterizing almost all of the thinking around women and their bodies. all of this stuff, whether it's defunding planned parenthood or the personhood amendment or the mandator

for the the care they provided to the uninsured. romney took that tax and put it towards his law. so that's two pots of federal money sand a tax. so how much of romney's proposal relied on these funds? i asked jonathan gruber the mit who helped design the law. he told me 100%. that was my whole job, saying whether we could fit what he wanted to do within those three funding sources. the legislature ended up adding more money to the law after he proposed it. but the fact remains it remains on federal dollars and on state taxes. but romney's health care proposal doesn't make it easier for other states to do what he did. it makes it almost impossible. he's not offering states access to federal funds for universal coverage. here's what he's doing. >> i would like to take the medicaid dallas dollars and go to state and say you'll get what you got last year, plus inflation, plus 1% and you manage your care for your poor in the way you think best. >> that sounds nice. it's a cut to medicaid of more than $600 billion. that means medicaid will not be able to offer other states the generous deal massachu

justices to the supreme court that will follow the law and the constitution and it would be my preference that they reverse roe v. wade, therefore they return to the people and their elected representatives the decisions with regards to this important issue. >> cecile richards, as an expert and advocate, what do we make of this complete divide between what romney is saying these days about health care, about preexisting conditions, about abortion rights, something you care very much about, and what he's been saying for months, if not years? >> i think what we're -- i think what we're seeing, chris -- sorry, i lost the audio. i think what we're seeing is mitt romney, one, will say anything to get elected. he's been trying to muddy the waters on women's issues. it's clear and you made it clear, he has pledged to appoint judges to the supreme court that would overturn roe versus wade. this is has been a constitutional protection for nearly 40 years for women. get rid of planned parenthood, so the 3 million women that rely on us, and get rid of obama care, which has several protections in it

? republicans are against equal pay by law. these are big differences. don't talk about big bird one more time. >> please don't talk about big bird. leave the bird alone. the fact of the -- >> the bird is already dead. >> okay. >> shrum. but i actually agree with you on this one, chris. i think absolutely. i have been saying for a long, long time for the romney team to go big, to put the bigger argument in play here, and i think -- >> he did that last week. it's time for obama to do it. >> that's exactly what he did. and so now is the time for the obama team to come to the table. show me how big -- >> i think there are big differences about women's rights, big difference about the role of government in saving american -- that's my point. come back on me if i'm wrong. i don't think arguing about medicare dos and don'ts and what's in and what's out -- he'll always win that. you know why? he's willing to say anything, candidate, i was vice president of department of defense policy board. last year around this time i was down there in the combat zone let's watch. >> he is a pragmatic business pers

. he does say -- or his party does and he supports them, let's not have a law that says you have to get equal pay for equal work if you're a woman. these seem to be pretty fundamental positions he's taken and yet in the debate because his family apparently told him to go softer he was able to mask them. >> and i feel for obama because as lackluster as his performance was, it's really hard to debate someone who is willing to make things up and kind of pull facts out of thin air. i'm not sure it's necessarily at this point his job to refute all of this -- >> whose job is it? >> his campaign's and the super pacs. i don't understand why there's not an ad on tv that uses that old quote of his about how inequality should only be spoken about in private rooms and then says, well, look at what romney says in private rooms. here is what he says in the debate, which is the real romney? >> do you think moderators should play that role? i don't want to knock jim lehrer, he's a distinguished journalist, but i have seen people like the late tim russert and people like bob schieffer, whenever they hea

're aborted, that's murder under the law. does he know what he's doing? >> i don't think so. >> under the law. >> this is why he's got such an ideological bend. look at his budget. look at him try to privatize medicare. >> does he think anyone in their 70s and 80s can even shop? a lot of people can't even get around in their 70s and 80s. go out and shop for a health care policy? who would give them a health care policy? by the time you get near the end, you definitely have a lot of health problems. why would anybody ensure you? >> we can't have people going to congress and proposing crazy ideas. people have been, be you know -- they have never seen this side of paul ryan. they have never seen these extreme positions. >> he wouldn't even join -- he's not saving money by hurting poor people, by cutting back on medicare and those programs. >> uh-huh. >> he doesn't take that money and reduce the debt with it. he uses that savings to get rid of the capital gains stack, this is all for the rich people. >> right. >> is he more of an elitist? >> i think he's fiscally responsible. he supported two war

, then someone who has an abortion is a murderer because that's a person who was killed? under the law you want written. is that true? >> life begins at conception. >> is it a person? >> i think life begins at conception. i said life begins at conception. >> is that life a person? let me ask you, congressman ryan, you endorsed, co-sponsored a bill, you, congressman ryan, endorsed, co-sponsored a bill to make the fertilized human egg a person. you stand by that tonight or not? >> i don't know what congressman ryan would say on that issue. i can tell you that i do believe life begins at conception. >> in other words, it's a little tricky admitting that he might be right or admitting that he's wrong. which is worse? >> i -- i am telling you what my statement is. >> okay. thank you. this is not congress mman ryan anymore. this is congresswoman blackburn speaking in her own political interest. anyway, i want to -- i know why, by the way. let me ask you about this bin laden. vice president biden is notoriously responsible for saying don't go in there with the s.e.a.l.s, go in there with drones, don't
